    came to my mind

    Hello!
    Is "up" necessary in this case, please?:

    "That's the only thing that came up to my mind."

    Thank you

    Will

    No. You could say "came into my mind". I would say "...the only thing that came to mind".

    Re: came to my mind

    I'd go further and say it shouldn't be there.
