There seem to be some areal preferences:
*-isko- is extremely productive as an adjectival suffix in Germanic (also *-sko-) and Balto-Slavic, though not unknown elsewhere.
Various nasal suffixes (*-o:n(o)-, *-a:n(o)-, *-e:n(o)-) occur here and there; the well-known "class member" suffix *-(h1)o:n forms ethnonyms in several branches and is perhaps pan-IE. There are also some characteristically Anatolian suffixes like Luw. -wanni / Hit. -u(m)na- (of substratal origin?).

This discussion brought me a question: is there any PIE ethnonymic suffix
present around all IE area?
*-on, *-no, *-ko, *-isko, *-yo ?????
