    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'.
