Dear Herman,

the Chicago electronic version of the Tamil Lexicon 
(https://dsal.uchicago.edu/dictionaries/tamil-lex/) has a "words ending 
with" function. By using this function, quite a lot of nouns ending in 
-iṉ can be found. Many of them are obscure, but at least the words வயின் 
vayiṉ, "place", and கவின் kaviṉ, "beauty", are well attested in 
classical Tamil.

Best regards,
