I made this list for my own learning. But I guess other people can find it useful as well.

For those cases where all the genders have the same plural ending I also added that plural ending.

Nominative
Fem: -a
Masc: -y, -i
Neutr: -e
Pl: -e

Accusative
Fem: -ę
Masc: -y, -i (living: -a)
Neutr: -e
Pl: -e

Genitive
Fem: -y, -i
Masc: -u (living: -a)
Neutr: -a

Dative
Fem: -e, -i
Masc: -owi, (some -u)
Neutr: -om

Locative
Fem: -e, -i
Masc: -u, -e
Neutr: -u, -e
Pl: -ach

Instrumental
Fem: -ą
Masc: -em
Neutr: -em

I see that I made a misstake. The plural ending I wrote in nominative and accusative cases are for adjectives not for verbs.

there are some cases, though, where Masc. Nom. Nouns end with -a
just like Fem Nouns which might be confusing and worth pointing out.
they act just like Fem. Nouns but they are Masculine:
mężczyzna (man), kierowca (driver), and some other less popular...

They are a little tricky. They can act both as feminine and masculine noun. For example you say "mój/miły mężczyzna" (not moja/miła) in nominative case. Here it acts like a masculine noun but looks like a feminine noun (-a).

There are also feminine nouns that don't end in -a, but are still used grammatically as female nouns (eg. noc, miłosć).

Probably it's best to skip the nominative part of the list above, maybe it's appears more clearly then.

It's easy to confuse the nominative of the nouns with adjective endings.
If we skip the exceptions we can say (about nominative nouns):

Masc: ends in consonant
Fem: -a
Neutr: -e, -o, -y
