Google Sets doesn't give a historic perspective, but it does act as a great lint trap for terms you might have missed.

I entered Santa Clause, Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, Sinterklaas and came up with a bunch more I hadn't heard of or had forgotten. It isn't perfect, but I used it frequently in graduate school to search for obscure authors on related subjects.
