Hi guys I'm creating a wesite and my start name was "Plan Up!" but I found that a company already take that name, so my new thought is "Up2Plan".

I want to know if "Up to plan" means be able to plan, like if your friend wants to hang out and you can say him I'm up to plan. Could I use it for this situation?


  • In my opinion, it feels like you depend on a plan or something by those words.

    It does not have the meaning you wish it to have. Jul 25, 2018 at 12:00

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because "naming of new entities" (programming variables, new company / product names, etc.) is outside the remit of this site. Jul 25, 2018 at 12:44

    The main question is to know if "Up to plan" is well use in the contect of having nothing to do and you want to use the app for make something, so is not only about naming the comany. @FumbleFingers Jul 25, 2018 at 12:50
  • You've presented no evidence at all to suggest that up to plan might be an idiomatically established construction in English (it's not). It seems obvious to me that your only reason for asking this question is to get help naming your website. Jul 25, 2018 at 13:05

You can be up for {something} and that means you're amenable.

Are you up for a little tennis?

But if you're feeling tired, or achy, or a little under the weather, you might reply:

Sorry, I'm not quite up to it.

That means you cannot summon the energy or will to do it, or that there is something hindering or preventing you.

So, if you are up to it, you can summon the energy or stamina or will or desire. You're willing and capable.

We were thinking of taking a 15-mile hike up into the canyon tomorrow. How's you ankle? Has the sprain healed?
-- Sure, I'm up to it. I'd like to come along. The ankle's good.

plan isn't an activity, but planning is, although it doesn't mean that you're willing and able to hang out with someone.

Your wedding is in six months. Don't you think you should start looking for a venue? Or do you want to get married on a beach somewhere?
--You're right, it's high time I found a place, but I'm just so stressed out with work. I'm not really up to planning the whole thing.

  • So maybe it's fine to call the app, Up to Plan? That would mean that you dont have any things to do so you use the App to find what to do so you're "Up to Plan" right? Jul 25, 2018 at 12:48
  • No, "up to plan" does not mean you don't have anything planned, that your schedule is open. Jul 25, 2018 at 12:49
  • You could ask: Are you up for just hanging out? That means, "Are you amenable to the idea of doing nothing in particular with me?" That is, we will decide what we want to do if an idea comes to us or we think of something interesting or fun to do. We might just end up playing video games or watching a movie or shooting hoops.
