Actually now that I got that in my brain, it is a better name. It is very common, yet not 100% clearly specified.

That is the beauty of it. It work perfectly for strict ISO-8859-1 too. Another superset of iso-8859-1 is iso-8859-15 (aka latin-9). Unfortunately, these two are not compatible. E.g., cp1252 uses 0x80 for the Euro sign (€), while iso-8859-15 uses 0xa4. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CP1252 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO/IEC_8859-15 Which encoding to prefer probably depends on what kind of hashes you want to crack.
