I have a multi select text field with first names in it. I would like to use this list to link user IDs to it to send emails out when a new record is created.  If someone's name is listed, it should link their user ID and upon record creation fire off an email to notify them.  How can I get this done?

Could you use a "User - List" field?
If not, you will need a formula field that maps first names to users, then puts them into a list. This will need to be updated every time you want to support another user. Also, you will have to find a solution if a user with the same first name is added.
I’m with Justin. Use a List User field Tysoe.
