What about Benjamin? More traditional than Bennett, but still a lovely name.
Samuel/Samson/Seth/Silas/Simon - similar to Senan & Matthew
My major problem with Killian for you is that it sounds like a surname and Christie doesn't, so I can see his name being reversed often. I grew up with someone with a name similar to McKenna Grant and his name was constantly flipped to Grant McKenna.
What about Duncan? Similarities to Donnacha, Griffin, and familiar like MatthewOlivia/Livia/Livy/Liv : Thessaly/Darah/Bethel : Noelle/Eve
Benedict/Eli: Jude/Zane: Luke/Darius : Levi/Phineas/Calvin

I really like both Cillian (prefer this spelling - more traditional) and Matthew (it's handsome and refreshing compared to a lot of the trendy names being used today). Other suggestions, since you said you like Irish and nature names:
Colm/Collum/Callum - means "dove". I prefer Colm.
Conan/Connor - means "wolf", but maybe too associated with Conan O'Brien?
Ronan - means "seal".
Oisín - pronounced oh-SHEEN. Means "deer". Might be too weird for your family, though.
Owen - means "yew tree". Not sure it's special enough for you, though.
Niall - means "cloud".
