They may not be considered 'common' as a few of the suffixed words are archaic, but two alternative solutions to [2.] could be AVE and AIN.

    AVE: [interjection] welcome or farewell; [noun] shortened for Ave Maria; rosary beads used for counting Ave Marias (Hail Marys); the time for the Angelus, a series of prayers commemorating the Annuciation and Incarnation, to be recited 
  • STAVE
  • GRAVE
  • BRAVE
  • SAVE
  • LAVE - (archaic) [verb] wash
  • HAVE
    AIN: [noun] ayin (variant spelling of the 16th letter of the Hebrew alphabet); (Scottish-English) [determiner] own;
  • STAIN
  • GRAIN
  • BRAIN
  • SAIN - (archaic) [verb] to make the sign of the cross over
  • LAIN
  • HAIN - (archaic) [verb] to hedge or fence in; inclose [noun] an inclosure; a park
