Possible Suggestion/Solution #1

Is the first name a required field just in your VF page or is there a validation rule requiring the field?

You can also add your own custom error messages in your controller/extension using .addmessages ... example: ApexPages.addMessage(new ApexPages.Message(ApexPages.Severity.error,Label.Your_Error_Message_Label));

There's a post on the dev forums recommending using a custom label in your apexpages.messages for translation:
