I saw the movie, But I didn't find any resemblance between title's meaning to the plot of the movie.

Why is the movie titled "If I Stay" ?

    Then you clearly missed the whole premise of the movie.

From IMdb:

Life changes in an instant for young Mia Hall after a car accident puts her in a coma. During an out-of-body experience, she must decide whether to wake up and live a life far different than she had imagined. The choice is hers if she can go on.

So, the main character is having an out of body near-death experience. She has a choice to go back into her body and continue living, or not and properly die.

If she stays, the movie shows us what her life will be like going forward. Hence the title, "If I Stay."
