I LOVE the name Augustin, and it was on my list for a long time, but I've never seen it terminated with an "an". Unfortunately it sounded ridiculous with our long last name ending in "an"...I think its just perfect. Here's the skinny on it from Behind the Name:

AUGUSTIN

Gender: Masculine

Usage: French, Czech, Romanian, Croatian

Pronounced: o-goos-TEN (French)
French, Czech, Romanian and Croatian form of Augustinus (see AUGUSTINE (1))

HTH!
