    I am sorry to hear that you are having such trouble finding a name!

    Here are some ideas for you:
    Kennon (see the recent blog post. I'm pretty sure it is Irish)
    Shale
    Gable
    Not expecting, just planning and building lists!

    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 Matthew
    Olivia/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".
