The Old English verb wiccian has a cognate in Middle Low German wicken attested from the 13th century, besides wichelen "to bewitch". The further etymology of this word is problematic. It has no clear cognates in Germanic outside of English and Low German, and there are numerous possibilities for the Indo-European root from which it may have been derived.
Unsurprisingly, powerful bad witch ladies of the heterosexual persuasion tend to attract powerful bad wizard gentlemen.
