Is there a way to sort alphabetically by first name in the grade book?
Currently, the grade book sorts by Last Name, First name. You can find more information regarding sorting in the grade book here:

FWIW in the "classic" (old) Gradebook, you can use the Notes column to sort by first name, although it involves typing the first names into the Notes. But if you do that, you can sort the Notes column (with the students' first names), and it works.
I use the Notes column to sort on other things, not first name, but it would work for first names. :-)
Kimberly Walton Welcome to the Canvas Community! Robbie Grant Admin has given you great information about the Gradebook (thanks, Robbie!). If your school is using the New Gradebook, you have the option to sort by first name or last name as described in How do I sort and display student names in the Student Name column in the New Gradebook?
