Tagalog has a few words with a final -iw:

sisiw - chick
baliw - insane, mad
daniw - custom
giliw - affection, fondness
magiliw - friendly (the adjectival form of giliw, of course)
pag-aaliw - pleasure

Hiligaynon has final -iw in the following:

bidyiw - spear, harpoon
paksiw - dish of meat cooked with vinegar
