Hello Alexander and thank you for posting on our forum!

The {subscriber_first_name} smart text is generated automatically, based on the full name of the subscriber.
The first word is used for two and three word names, like
John Doe => John
John Doe Williams => John
The two first words are used for names with three or more words:
John Jesse Doe Williams => John Jesse
John Jesse Doe Williams Jr => John Jesse

If that is not sufficient and you still need a field, you can create one in the Extra Fields, call it First Name and set it to show before the rest of the form, so that it shows right before the original name.
Then, in the module or menu item, you can set the Name field to be called Last Name.

Then, to access it in your newsletters, you would have to write {include:field}field_id{/include} where the field_id is the ID of the First Name field you created.

Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Thanks again.
