The narrator recalls his adolescence.

"On warning you," said Agnes, with a steady glance, "against your bad Angel."
"What is my bad Angel?"
"Say Who," she mildly replied.
"Who, then?"
[David Copperfield by Charles Dickens]
I'd like to know if "say who" means "you say whoever."
Thank you in advance for your help.

    I think 'Say Who' is in the imperative. Agnes is asking David to say 'who' instead of 'what'.
