With HCP, things get hairy pretty quickly. This is the first coordination sphere, with 12 atoms at the distance $a$ from the origin: These are the second nearest neighbors, i.e. the 6 atoms at $\sqrt{2}a$ from the origin, each touching 4 atoms of the first sphere: These are the third nearest neighbors, which are the 2 atoms at $\sqrt{8\over3}a$ from the ...
