TheForce.Net posted an interview with author Troy Denning covering Crucible in some length.

Why did you choose the title Crucible?

Troy Denning: We spent a lot of time talking about titles and trying to figure out what to call the book. I had proposed several different titles and finally Shelly [Shapiro, Del Rey editor] informed me that they had come back with the idea of the title “Crucible” for the story. We all agreed that it fit. It has a couple of different meanings. One was the whole basic melting and re-forging idea, and then also the crucible that you go through as a transition — the idea of changing people. We all agreed that it fit and the only hesitation I had was that I had already used it in the title on a Forgotten Realms book about fifteen years earlier. I guess that kind of shows your age when you’re recycling your titles! I told them that and they were fine with it. We chose it because it really worked on several different levels.
