The following document says the following are aliases: x-IBM874, cp874, ibm874, ibm-874, 874
http://www.java2s.com/Tutorial/Java/0180__File/DisplaysAvailableCharsetsandaliases.htm
http://www.fileformat.info/info/charset/x-IBM874/index.htm
In addition it seems that 'windows_874' is used (that's the one that raised this issue for me), but I've also seen references of windows-874, windows874 , WIN874:
