Nope!

Hint: The noun form of this word was repurposed in the 1960s to include a meaning similar to "nerd".

Lol, 'dork' immediately sprang to mind. But there's 'square' also.

That's what you get when you let non-witches decide where the word came from.

The etymology of my word traces back fairly obscurely to a PIE root that means "bend". And as any witch worth his or her besom will attest, "bend" is a far more likely origin than "lively".

witch [OE] The close Germanic relatives of witch have died out, but it seems that it may be related to German weihen 'consecrate' and even, distantly, to English victim (etymologically 'someone killed in a religious ritual, so the word's underlying signification is of a 'priestess.' Wicked was derived from Old English wicca 'wizard,' the masculine form of wicce, ancestor of modern English witch.
